Fantastic Bake Along – Crazy for Caramel


Happy Saturday everyone!

Like every month, I’m participating in the Fantastic Bake Along hosted by Tracy @itsatsweetday. We actually had a break last month due to poor Tracy having wrist surgery but it’s good to be back! This month, AJ from A petite slice of life chose the recipe and I was pretty excited knowing that she is lactose intolerant and coeliac (which meant no dairy and no gluten). Aj chose a recipe for a caramel recipe, which you can find here on Tracy’s blog.

Now, I’ve made caramel before but never without milk or butter so that was certainly a first! And I’m afraid I failed somewhat 🙈


Everything was going well, I had my ingredients together in the pan, leaving them to boil. That’s when I noticed that the mixture was not taking a caramel colour at all. I was a bit worried but decided to leave it for a bit longer. After a while longer though, it still wasn’t changing colour and I was afraid it would split so I decided to pour it into my dish. I’m not sure what I did wrong but it was NOT easy to cut into pieces afterwards. I feel like this wasn’t really a success but it was still edible and I now have some caramel in the fridge so I can’t complain too much! Looking forward to see what other participants thought though.

If you are interested in participating, contact Tracy and you can also follow my Pinterest board where I will be adding all the recipes for the Bake Along.
